The Bear Lake valley is a rural, family friendly community where many of its residents make their living in agriculture. It is a relaxed, slower-paced life. Bear Lake Memorial Hospital is within 20 minutes of the beautiful Bear Lake. The lake is known for its turquoise blue water that offers fishing, boating and water skiing in the summer months and Cisco ice fishing, which is exclusive to Bear Lake, in the winter. It also has a fantastic beach front for picnicking and all kinds of beach activities. This valley is surrounded by majestic mountains with areas that are perfect for hiking, skiing, snow machining and hunting. It is said to have a true four-season climate. It is within just a few hours of two national parks (Yellowstone National Park and Teton National Park) and close to nationally recognized downhill skiing resorts. The proximity of the Bear Lake Valley to metropolitan areas allows its residents to take advantage of shopping, cultural events and other entertainment while still having the advantage of living in a quiet rural area.
